Sherman Firefly is a British modification of the American medium tank M4 Sherman from the Second World War. In the years 1942-1945 the USA transported about 17,000 M4 Sherman medium tanks to Great Britain according to the Lend-Lease Agreement. Many vehicles were modified by the British, including adding a radio station, reinforcing the armour, replacing the engine or finally installing a stronger 17-pound gun, which made it possible to fight modern German tanks. In addition to Britain, Sherman Firefly tanks were used by other Allied forces, including Polish forces in the West.
The tank was faithfully reproduced by Cobi from an original model from General Maczek's 1st Armoured Division. There are moving elements such as hatches, wheels and tracks, rotating turret and a movable cannon, which also encourages play.
